Hear what school administrator, Mr. Prince Oppong Peprah thinks about nKoso:

Do students at your school have problems affording the tuition? If yes what do you do in those situations?

Most students have problems in the paying of tuition fees. The school, therefore, grants some of them a discount and sometimes gives them a time frame to pay-up.

What were your feelings when nKoso first approached you about being a partner?

It was a relief when we heard nKoso wanted to partner with us because the burden of some parents not being able to pay their ward's tuition was going to be taken care of.

In your opinion is the service provided by nKoso beneficial to the students at your school and your community?

The service provided by nKoso is very beneficial because most students can now continue their school without thinking much about the tuition fees and other expenses. This also has made it possible for an intense improvement in the academics of the beneficiaries.

What do you like about nKoso?

nKoso has been a very beneficial assistance to the pupils of Yesu Mmo. Due to their assistance program it has made it possible for some of our students to be enjoying the whole school system.
